Prepping and Sending Samples

Although we prefer you to drop off samples to the lab, use pick up locations or delivery services, we do accept test via FedEx and UPS ONLY.  Please select NEXT DAY SHIPPING

When prepping samples for shipping, there are a few important steps to take.

  1. Be sure to make a sterile area to prep samples
  2. Be sure to use powder free latex gloves and always use a new pair for each sample

When sending flowers, it is important to use a sturdy, air tight container to preserve the shape and structure of the flower. We recommend using plastic pop top bottles or small (4 oz or less) plastic containers (see below), using a product like this will insure a quality HD photo and make inspection of the flower more accurate.

When sending concentrates and infused products, they should be packaged similar to flowers.

If you are sending oils or liquids, please be sure to take extra caution that your product does not spill or open during shipping. Using small containers that will protect samples from heat and cold and have a twist top lid are recommended.

If you are sending samples for sex testing, please refer to the PDF below and follow the directions on proper collecting procedures. Once samples are collected you may send samples using the directions below.

Using a Vacuum-sealed Bag

After your product is prepped, we recommend to use a vacuum sealed bag to mask any odors. DO NOT use any scent covers such as cologne, perfume, body spray, coffee beans or any other masking tricks. Due to the high sensitivity of our state of the art testing equipment, using products like this will affect your testing results.

After your samples are secure and air tight, place them in a box and be sure to add cushioning to be sure that your samples are not damaged during shipping. We recommend bubble wrap, newspaper or something similar.

Please remember that EVERY package shipped MUST have a Request for Analysis/Chain of Custody form included with samples, this can be found below. Every sample must be labeled a Sample Name and match the Sample Name description on the form.
